Fans can get a preview of the world’s largest automotive extravaganza Tuesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a twilight cruise during Food Lion AutoFair Classic Car Night at the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series.

Along with the world’s best Legend Car and Bandolero racing, more than 100 classic automobiles from 24 area car clubs, including the Queen City Corvette Club, Ford Owner's Association of the Carolinas and Tach Twisters Car Club, will take a trip around the 1.5-mile superspeedway under the lights in front of the Summer Shootout Series crowd. These same clubs, plus many more will be back at the track Sept. 20-23 for the Food Lion AutoFair.

Tuesday, fans can enter to win a pair of tickets to the upcoming car show, which will feature a collector car auction, thousands of vendors and up to 1,500 collectible vehicles available for sale in the car corral. Plus, kids can enjoy a huge POWERADE Play Zone at the Food Lion AutoFair, which will include appearances by Twiggy, the world famous water skiing squirrel.
